The Story of the…
BLACK FLAG Skateboard
The year was 1984, and all of the young westside punks terrorized our hood on skate decks. Hardcore bands started to realize this, so they made boards. Some of the first groups to do it were Suicidal Tendecies and The Big Boys. It made total sense, because many of these bands had members who skated. When I heard Black Flag was coming out with a deck, I was super stoked. Now here is your chance to the story behind the creation of this hardcore deck that is now a collector’s item. Jordan Schwartz of We Got Power & Jim McDowell of Rip City Skates get down to the nitty gritty and talk about this piece of skate history.
